p.2 Incidents Of The Day - The steam tug McArthur was hauled out at Power's shipyard. She will be thoroughly overhauled.

Struck A Rock - Brockville, Dec. 4th - Yesterday the large propeller Haskell, on her way from Chicago to Ogdensburg, struck a rock abreast of Chippewa Bay. An examination immediately after revealed five feet of water in the hold and the captain at once ran the boat to a sandy shore and beached her. The tug Curlew came from Ogdensburg last night, bringing a barge and about seventy-five men, who are now lightering the cargo. The craft had about 10,000 bushels of corn, the rest flour and bran.

(Donnelly Bros. have despatched a steam-pump to the sunken craft.)
